    zombie chav or alien mangle, shot gun santa is really fun to (much better than the zombie version, crashed way to much and the movment of the zombies were just terrible)

    thos are my 3:D

    [edit] o an brothers in arms like the guy above me said, have it but it gets kinda frustrating...

    So heres the list

    Zombie Chav

    Alien Mangle

    shotgun Santa

    brothers in arms

    none of those are shootemups. By the looks of it recently released Blue Attack would be your best bet.

    How so? You mean like ship shoot-em-ups or just shooting games in general?

    These are shootemups. Galaga, Smash tv, geometry wars, etc. BIA is a 3rd person shooter, Alien is a First person shooter, and the zombie one is a whack a mole game.

    Blue attack seems like it would be the winner here.

    But for those who tried Dragonforce Lite, that looks pretty promising too.
    Btw anyone know when thats coming out?

    Blue Attack, hands down. It might be because it's new, but I think it's still the best out there at the moment.

    Triphids is a pretty good shmup. It was released yesterday, and unfortunately it will probably be buried alive by Blue Attack fervor. It's defintely a shame, because Triphids is very retro charming and certainly worth the price tag.

    Thanks for this recommendation! Downloading it now.
    Video on the site looks and especially sounds nice:

    Let me know what you think. Also, there's a 1.1 patch making it through the slog of the app store which fixes some sound (but no gamplay!) issues.

    thanks, yes....the music stops when playing.
    And I was purchasing this app mostly because of the music in the video :)
    So, thanks for the update.

    Game itself is nice. Very retro and charming. So far I really like it but it gets very hard quickly :)

    I haven't played Blue Attack, Radio Flare and Sentry Alpha but they all seem pretty good.
    My favorite shmups atm are Cosmo Hero and Platypus. Blue Skies could also be considered a shmup, its pretty great, too.

    If you want free shmups I recommend Space Deadbeef and Dragon Force Lite (they still haven't released the frickin full version.)

    Shmups to avoid are: Deadly Space, Tilt Fighter and Space Mania.

    I think Platypus is one of the best.
